There are a lot of Backstreet Boys fans that are going to be merry with the news that the band, which comprises Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie D and A J McLean, will be releasing a new album in 2012. Howie D delivered this news during his visit to Clevver Music where he sang his new single “Lie To Me”. It was an acoustic performance for the site’s “Live on Sunset” special.
After an extremely successful summer tour in 2011 with the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB), they plan to go on a European tour in 2012 with the same band again, under the banner of NKOTBSB. “That’s one of the things happening in 2012, we’re going to be in the studio to work on a new record,” contactmusic.com quoted bandmate Howie D as saying.
“We keep challenging ourselves when working on new albums by constantly trying to push the envelope, and trying to top the last album. That’s what we do and that’s one of the reasons why we take our time to make the record the best it can be. To not rush it and to keep our finger on the pulse of what’s hot,” he added.
While Howie D is busy relaying news of their upcoming album everywhere, fellow bandmate A J Mclean, who recently exchanged vows with Rochelle Karidis, is keen on becoming a dad this year. McLean, who delayed his wedding plans earlier in 2011, in order to seek help for a recurring addiction doesn’t plan on holding off becoming a dad. The singer, who is currently honeymooning in Bora Bora, tells In Touch magazine, “We want to start a family.”
NKOTB’s plans for Christmas
This holiday season, NKOTB are taking it easy according to their twitter feeds. Jonathan Knight is enjoying a vacation in Anguilla, while bandmate Danny Wood is enjoying his Christmas with his family and taking his daughters out to see War Horse and We Bought a Zoo. On the other hand, lead singer Jordan Knight is busy rehearsing for his upcoming shows.
